Description: The Lime Inn restaurant is located in downtown Cruz Bay and has been a favorite between locals and visitors alike since 1984. Our goal is for you to sit back and relax as you enjoy our delicious cocktails, hand-picked wines, and cold beers while sampling from our diverse and consistently delicious menu. Chef Amaro and his team create fresh, thought-out, vibrant dishes in an island casual environment. Between beautiful and lively outside bar, the brightly colored Caribbean dining room, and the garden that surrounds you, a lively ambiance accompanies the delicious plates. We look forward to you spending time with us, sipping, eating, and enjoying our place.

We went for all-you-can-eat shrimp on Wednesday night and really enjoyed it. The owner (I believe he was the owner, the gentleman acting as host) was really pleasant and made it a great experience. The service was quick and the food was delicious (though shrimp was peel-n-eat, so not deveined). There is a bar in the front - go in a bit early and grab a tropical drink first.

Another couple recommended this restaurant. You pick your lobster based on weight. The best lobster I've had. Staff and owner is very friendly.

If you are visiting St. John & you love seafood, you must visit The Lime Inn for dinner. The restaurant is located in downtown Cruz Bay and has a great vibe to it as it's a small quaint open air restaurant with a great staff and amazing seafood. We were in St. John for 4 nights and ate at The Lime Inn 2 nights. We were greeted by Rich (owner) both evenings and our hostess was his beautiful daughter, Chelsea. Both were so great and shared many great stories about the island, things to do, places to visit and the history behind The Lime Inn. Our server was Jenn, who was quite witty and provided great service. She's been there for 24 years and loved not only by the locals there but by tourists who return there each year. There were several in our party that ordered the fresh Caribbean lobster and I ordered the Shrimp and Scallop pasta both evenings. Delicious!

Over the last decade this is a "go to" restaurant. Always a very good meal, excellent bar, great staff, and Rich is always a great host.

The food was great- my husband got a lobster, the staff helped open it as it is very time consuming. Staff was friendly and food was well priced, and delicious! Highly recommend
